After speaking out on the death of George Floyd this week, Ice Cube took to Twitter to explain why he would not be making his scheduled appearance on Good Morning America.

"I apologize to everyone expecting to see me on Good Morning America today, but after the events in Minnesota with George Floyd, I'm in no mood to tell America, good morning," he tweeted early Thursday morning (May 28).

This week, Ice Cube sought answers after the widely circulated video of a Minnesota cop kneeling on Floyd's neck caught his attention.

"How long will we go for Blue on Black Crime before we strike back???" he asked.

Many notable stars such as Beyonce, Madonna, Diddy, Ariana Grande, and Cardi B, and more have spoken about the horrific incident, which has sparked riots and protests in Minnesota.

The officers involved in the death of Floyd were fired following Monday's occurrence.
